How does it work?

“We have essentially taken all the components of a laboratory, shrunk them, and put them in a microchip.”

– Dr Matheus Vargas, CTO 

Orbis’ proprietary microfluidic disks contain all the reagents required to miniaturise an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), the gold-standard serology test used in laboratories worldwide. The platform controls the flow of fluid through the disks and analyses the output using an automated optical read-out system. This achieves the speed and portability of a rapid strip test with the accuracy and robust repeatability of an ELISA.
